Modern Warfare 4During a recent investor call, Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg stated, "For Call of Duty, consistent with our past practices, we are planning for the mainline release in Q4 to be down versus 2012"

Eric Hirshberg further went on to revealed the reason behind the decline in sales forecast of next Call of Duty game in 2013, "challenged global economy" and "the ongoing console transition,"

He further added, "For 2013 on the Activision Publishing side, there is increased volatility this year due to the ongoing console transition, which makes predicting the future more challenging than in normal years in the cycle."

Gotta say that logo looks downright stupid. I thought the MW3 one was very clever. It started out as WW3, then the first W flipped upside down to become MW3. But this one just looks dumb. Little effort was put into it at all. As for the game, have to reserve judgment for now but I have to say I'm getting really tired of the CoD franchise, both MW and BO. Time for a change.

GTA without a doubt. People are starting to get burned out on COD. I know I am. I didn't even buy Black Ops 2 this year and of the two it is arguably the better one. For starter they try something new, MW just copies them and then adds/removes a feature or two.
